Lottery fever hits Springfield, but the Simpsons are forced to forgo a lottery ticket, and many other luxuries, to pay for a life-saving operation for their dog, Santa's Little Helper. All their personal lives are affected negatively by the sacrifice, and they come to resent Santa's Little Helper. He runs away and is captured by Mr. Burns, who trains him to be a guard dog.

[after Santa's Little Helper disappears
There's his leash, there's his water dish, and there's the spot where he took a whiz on the rug!

Oh, Marge! There's no such place! I made it all up!
[Marge clears throat
Or to put it another way... there... is.
